A state-of-the-art research and development centerA state-of-the-art research and development center

Intermolecular’s San Jose headquarters features a 150,000 square foot facility, incorporating a state-of-the-art cleanroom and High Productivity Combinatorial (HPC) Development Center. It holds an extensive array of material characterization and electrical-test equipment, as well as high-volume manufacturing and HPC processing systems for semiconductor and clean energy applications.

Informatics

The Tempus™ S-80 is a comprehensive Web-based Informatics system that serves as the backbone for integrating experimental process data, characterization results and automated analysis tools into unified R&D workflows.

Our Informatics system enables complex experimental design, planning, scheduling and tracking of experimental splits and the associated metrology, e-test chips and e-test data. The Workflow Manager module controls the flow of activities while grouping experimental runs into projects. The Tempus E60 module allows automatic generation and execution of e-test algorithms and recipes.

Intermolecular’s Tempus S-80 Informatics platform is designed to drastically improve the efficiency of semiconductor and clean energy R&D. It enables automatic data collection from different R&D equipment, metrology tools and enterprise systems. Customized individual workspaces, accessible via Web browser, allow operators, scientists, engineers and management teams to perform and monitor their work using a centralized data warehouse.

Security

All Intermolecular facilities provide collaborative development customers with secure access to this state-of-the-art infrastructure.

The Tempus S-80's Collaboration Manager module provides secure communication between multiple sites, serves as a virtual fab, and handles content-access privileges, document control, e-mail messaging, approval cycles and document-search capabilities. Access control privileges make it easy and secure to administer this Web-based Informatics system, which meets U.S. Department of Defense security protocols.
